Let me get this straight, you don't have a picture as long as the unit is on, but when you go to turn off a picture flashes? Questions, first how is the picture when it flashes briefly? Is it normal or with colors misaligned? How is the sound? Could be a loose connection or bad capacitor in the video circuit.

Westinghouse ew32s5kw tv red light shows power is going to unit pressing power turns indicator light from red to blue for a brief moment then back to red.

I had the same problem on my Westinghouse 32 inch TV. The internal main power supply went bad and had to be replaced. I had a TV repair shop do it. It was about 8 years ago. Haven't had a problem since. I think it cost about $70 for parts and labor. Nowadays TVs are pretty much a throw away item if they go bad. TV repair shops are getting hard to find plus the cost of TVs has come down so much sometimes you can get a new set for what the repair would cost!

fix it all as you open.

Turn Power Off by pressing power button on projector, it is now in standby.

most likely it is your cable. If a for sure brand new cable doesn't fix it it is most likely the main board. Also try flashing the software again.

When i switch tv on, it shows picture for 5 seconds then goes into standby. the tv is a vistron ltm-3271e lcd

The problem is associated with the power supply that cannot run under load. The showing of picture for a brief period of time indicates that the main board, ballast, inverter and panel drive are all OK. The unit turns on but the power supply cannot sustain the power requirement of the unit and shuts down.
The usual culprit on the power supply are blown or bad capacitors. Check the power supply for such capacitors. If no apparent damage or defect is found, replace the power supply.

Replaced lamp now projecter will not turn on hd70

I had a similar situation, but we fixed it.  I can't exactly tell you why it worked nor whether or not it will for you.  Here's the deal.  
First, take your lamp out and re-seat it.  This is one of the easiest ways to get a projector not to power up.
In our case, the thing would fire up, show us the Optoma logo, the blue screen, and then within about 15 seconds, it shut down, lamp fail light came on, and only a hard power reset would let us try again.  The bulb was good; after all, it came on, right?
So, we kept playing this game of power up, fail, unplug, replug.  I gave up and went to do something else.  I came back to the projector, needing it to let me see a screen to configure (weird I know, but that's how it was).  Anyhow, at this point, the projector stayed on, no problems.  So, I kept it running through the night with a kitchen timer on.  After 5 1/2 hours without failure, we knew we were set.  
The point?  If it's powering up and showing picture for even a brief period, try cycling it several times.  However, if it's overheating or showing any other signs of distress, you may make it worse using my approach.  I think we may have just been lucky or the projector gnomes came in the night.
